An Old Fashioned Love Song - Vanha rakkauslaulu

As another entry in our "Both Sides Now" we now present Dave's "Vanha rakkauslaulu" (An old love song), on the B-side of yesterday's Finnpick "Rosy". It is a good song and decent cover as such, but the "Rosy" was the biger hit of the pair. The original song "An Old Fashioned Love Song" was penned by famous US composer and musician Paul Williams for the rock group Three Dog Night. It was culled as the first single from their 1971 album Harmony. The song peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Paul Williams also recorded his own version of the song on his album "An Old Fashioned Love Song" in the same year of 1971.

Here's the pair:
